Tree Pruning Maintenance on the Downtown Mall

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Scheduled tree pruning on the Downtown Mall will begin in the morning of Wednesday, January 30, 2019 and is expected to last about two weeks.

Vehicular and pedestrian activity on the Downtown Mall may be impeded during this scheduled maintenance. Removing deadwood from these trees is necessary as it improves tree health and public safety.
